Dr. Takeshi Yamada from "Immortalized" is one of the taxidermists featured in the AMC reality docu-series.

Dr. Takeshi Yamada, originally from Osaka, Japan, has found his dream home in the land of freakshows and the original Nathan's Famous hot dog stand: Coney Island, New York. Always in a tuxedo and top hat, the dapper Dr. Yamada considers his award-winning artwork "specimens" rather than examples of self expression. His imaginative mind has led him to creating a six-foot long Mongolian death worm, a two-headed baby, a seven-fingered hand, nuclear-radiated stag beetles and a furry mermaid-bunny with a seal tail — an ode to Coney Island's original name given by the Dutch which translates to "Rabbit Island."
